Worldview 2018 Photo Competition NOW OPEN!

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN TO GET YOUR CAMERAS AND SMARTPHONES READY AND POISED TO TAKE PART IN THE ANNUAL SCHOOL OF GEOGRAPHY PHOTO COMPETITION!

 

We hope that you will share a glimpse of some of the amazing geographical and environmental opportunities here at Queen Mary. So whether you are doing fieldwork, heading home for a weekend break, exploring the capital or working on a placement, we want you to try and capture something extraordinary or thought-provoking that gives people an insight into being a geographer or environmental scientist.
